Those NFL players will face McCoy's team consisting of current and former Philadelphia Eagles like, DeSean Jackson, Brent Celek, Jeremy Maclin, and Brian Westbrook.

Proceeds from the game will benefit the LeSean McCoy Foundation, which raises funds and awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). The same disease that took the life of McCoy’s grandmother.
